Gonzalo Gassol Live with Conklin Bass

Gonzalo Gassol


     As the bass player for the Spanish metal band KilleM I've recorded two albums and toured along the country sharing the stage with metal legends as Sepultura, Pestilence, Obituary, Napalm Death, Destruction, Tankard, Firewind, Angra, Blind Guardian, Nightrage,� Moonsorrow... and also some of the best new bands in the scene as Textures, Unexpect, Sebkha Chott, Hatesphere...

     After our first release our style became more and more progressive so I started to feel the need for something more than a conventional bass guitar. I needed something easier to play when speed and strange chords progressions allied, and a wider range so I can translate all my ideas to the fingerboard.

     Conklin was the answer. When I saw a Bill Dickens video I fell in love with his instrument, and to my surprise it was really affordable so I purchased a GTBD7 and have never regretted it.

     Since then it is my one and only instrument. No matter if I'm playing live, in the studio, or practicing with the band or on my own. It has the playability, the tone and the look I need for every situation. I just feel a bit sorry for the next player to go on stage, because their basses rarely reach the standards of my Conklin, and the sound guys tend to blame it on them.
